I stayed here with 3 friends for 3 nights last week. The hotel is very close to a large number of shops (Macys about 500 yards away), the stop for the city bus tours and the cable car route to the fisherman's wharf. The room was nice and clean and adequate for our needs but the best part was the... More

Since my usual hotel was booked solid for my annual San Fran trip I decided to stay here. At first glance I was not keen on being in this hotel because to say the neighborhood was sketchy is an understatement. The hotel is in Union Square amidst the high end luxury stores you have several homeless folks as well as... More

Right on the doorstep of Union Square where you are close to bars, restaurants & shopping AND where you can catch tourist buses/trams to all parts of the city, this older hotel is functional & comfortable. The breakfasts in its restaurant where excellent and the service there was likewise. Our room was situated in the older part of the hotel... More

We stayed for a week. Clean quiet room (overlooking inner atrium (as requested). Staff very helpful. Guests mainly Australian / British / European. John the concierge was very helpful. Hotel bar / restaurant very atmospheric. Would stay here again id in SF.

This hotel survives on its location alone. In the heart of Union Square, it is an old hotel that is in dreadful need of an update. The concierge is fabulous and always there to help, however, I found the front desk staff to be lazy and completely uninterested in prompt, or friendly service. What is worse: the "valet" parking requires... More

I first stayed here in 1974 and the hotel name has never changed. The location is what you pay for and its fabulously close to what you need when on vacation. Premier Room was worth the extra money. Obviously there are much smaller rooms that wont offer the same satisfaction. Nice staff but here is no easy parking here so... More

The location of this hotel was perfect for my recent visit to San Francisco. Right next to a cable car stop and a busline that runs on the same street as the hotel. It is an older hotel but clean. I stayed in a family suite with 2 rooms. The beds were moderately comfortable but the twin beds didn't have... More

We stayed at this hotel at the end of a two month trip in America. The rooms were small, the provided breakfast (belgin waffles) was cold and dry every morning, however what was worse was upon checkin they require a credit card. While this has not been a problem for the last two months at the over 20 hotels we've... More
